Uncooled Infrared Imaging: Commercial & Military Applications 2012 - Price Below $1000 To Boost Sales Over 1 Mn Units In 2017

DUBLIN, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Uncooled Infrared Imaging: Commercial & Military Applications 2012" report to their offering.

     (Logo: ) Infrared camera price below $ 1000 will boost sales over 1 million units in 2017 Initially developed for the military market by US defense companies, infrared (IR) uncooled cameras are now widely used in many commercial applications. This report provides an overview of all the infrared technologies currently commercialized focused on uncooled Long Wave Infrared/thermal detection with microbolometers. Market forecasts till 2017 with in-depth analysis of commercial and military markets is provided, along with a description of the main active players and the lasts technological evolutions and future trends. SALES WILL GROW FROM 320, 000 IN 2011 TO 1,1 M UNITS IN 2017 Commercial business is expanding at a high rate and is driven by three main markets: - Thermography market : still the largest commercial market, sales have boomed in 2011. An increasing competition from new entrants from the power tool market e.g. DeWALT, Milwaukee Tools will make camera price drop down below $1,000 and accelerates thermal imaging adoption by new categories of users (electricians, contractors). - Automotive market is concentrated in only one supplier, Autoliv, but has increased sales by + 30% in volume in 2011. It is expected that IR cameras sales for automotive will exceed 300,000 units in 2017, but installation rate in cars will remain below 1% in the long term. - Surveillance becomes a strategic market and focuses the attention of all IR supply chain players : detector, core, and camera manufacturers. Major new entrants from visible CCTV, and military markets have positioned on that growing business and have started a price war. Commercial market will compensate for the decline of military market mainly occupied by U.S. companies. COST REDUCTION INCREASING IN 2011 - 2012 Cost driven price reduction (-15% / year) is rapidly broadening the use of Infrared cameras in many commercial markets and specially in thermography and surveillance markets. In thermography, ultra low end cameras have been introduced with success by FLIR in 2010, and Dewalt will introduce a new model in 2012 at the breakthrough price of $ 999. In surveillance, FLIR and Axis are competing heavily on the pricing and DRS introduced a middle end camera at the incredible pricing of $ 2,000 in 2012, half what has been typical ! PRICE DECREASE IS DRIVING R&D DEVELOPMENTS Wafer Level Packaging is confirmed as a significant trend to further reduce detector cost and will be a strategic issue for new players to successfully enter the market. FLIR started to use WLP in 2011, and soon other players will follow. (Raytheon, Sensonor, NEC). KEY FEATURES OF THE REPORT
